ORGANIC PLANT STARTS
It’s planting time……and we’ve got beautiful organic starts from Crown Valley Organics and Biver Farms.
Cabbage, herbs, kale, lettuces, tomatoes, peppers and more.
NEW TO GARDENING, select one of the Perfect Picks. Gateway Greening selected 24 varieties that are perfect for our area and Crown Valley grew them. A portion of each sale of “Perfect Picks” goes to Gateway Greening.
Local Harvest Grocery is now a drop-off and pick-up point for Jansen Sharpening. Seth and Maria Jansen, owners of Jansen Sharpening, received individualized training from a professional sharpener in Chicago and are putting it to good use! Items dropped off by 3 p.m. Wed will be ready for pick-up after 3 p.m. on Saturday. You can also get on site sharpening every Saturday at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market.
Tips for knives:
• Keep them out of the dishwasher
• Use wood or soft plastic cutting boards instead of glass or other hard surfaces
• Between uses, straighten edges with a ceramic sharpening rod
• Store in a block or on a magnetic strip to prevent damage and to edge.
*They also sharpen machetes, mower blades, swords, pocket knives, scissors, glass clippers and loppers.
